Women are made to be humble, and have humility and to be nurturing. Not trying to be better than men.

Con

"Women are made to be humble, and have humility and to be nurturing. Not trying to be better than men."

This argument has nothing to do with the resolution. Men are not better than women, and men should not get more rights than women. It does not follow from this that women are better than men, or trying to be better than men. This is non-sequitur.

Men and women are equal. Therefore, it would be false to claim that men are better than women and men should get more rights than women (which is what you are claiming as taking "Pro" in this debate). It is also false to claim that women should get more rights than men.

Thus, the resolution has been negated.

Might makes right (because men have traditionally had power) is his only conceivable chance at winning this debate. I'm saying you could argue from an evolutionary perspective.

Men do not deserve more rights than women, however you are kidding yourself if you're acting as if men and women are the same. They are completely different psychologically and physically which is what makes the differences interesting. Both have different standards and expectations, (ex: child support) They deserve the same rights, they also deserve the same responsibilities which is not true as of now look at gender roles in a family. A better debate would be Equal responsibilities.

"I would suggest that the BoP should be shared since Pro isn't an experienced debater and it would be the most fair. I don't think Pro even knows what BoP is."

I do not claim to have knowledge on his knowledge. The debate is fair as is.

Lol, I was about to accept this debate until Rational_Thinker9119 accepted it. Oh well, my ELO will be higher if I debate more reputable debaters besides noobs. Good luck to jewelbug16, he's going to get demolished.
